Since the law change in 2012, Australian resident return visa has more strict requirements. Visa officers will assess the business contact, cultural contact, employment contact, and personal family ties to decide whether the applicant has met the eligibility criteria. If the condition are not satisfied, or the documents are not sufficient. It is likely the visa will be refused and only 3 months visa will be granted.
